I am a full-time painter and have shown my work at The David Klein Gallery in Birmingham, MI and other venues throughout the United States for the past twenty years. I have an MFA from the University of Iowa, went to Skowhegan, and have taught at a number of colleges and universities. I am the recipient of a Pollack-Krasner Award and a Michigan Council for the Arts Grant. I live in Ferndale, Michigan.
I began this blog in September of 2009. It was inspired by the Painting a Day movement. Although most of the earlier work posted here is less direct and involved more than one sitting to complete, the idea was similar to the daily painters in that I intended to regularly offer small, affordable oil paintings, mostly of the human figure, that were consistent with and derived from my larger, more thematic work. My intention was to post a new painting every other day, and the project was quite successful. However, I have now turned my attention to commissioned portraiture. I will continue to post both new and older work to the blog. Please come back often, or subscribe to follow this blog at the link below. I look forward to your comments, and please email any questions to email@example.com.
